Who Will Win The League This Season?
by garethp1981 on 18 Apr at 17:40
The very first blog I posted to OLBG, back in September was entitled “Who Won’t Win The League This Season?”, to read it click here. I argued that Manchester City, despite being favorites, would not win the Premier League. I also argued that the league winners would be either Chelsea or Manchester United. I think it is now clear that United won’t win the league, but I could still be right if Chelsea do. There is a lot more information available now than there was in September and I am not afraid to change my mind if that is what new information suggests. So I decided today, as we go in to the weekend of most teams’ 35th game from 38 (Manchester City will play their 34th games this weekend), I decided to take a look at the teams that..
Tuesday and Wednesday's Match Ups At The Crucible
by TeddyT on 22 Apr at 00:37
First Round Matches Tues and Wed 22nd 23rd April Michael Wasley gave the selections so far a great win last night at 11 on the exchanges together with other wins at 4/6, 8/13, EVS and 6/5 from seven selections so far. Marco Fu 4/7 v Martin Gould 8/5 Match starts 10.00am Tuesday 22nd Martin Gould has played seven matches at The Crucible, losing five matches and winning just two. Both of those wins however were against Marco Fu; 10-9 in 2010 and 10-8 in 2011. Fu has had twenty matches in Sheffield stretching back to 1999 and has won only seven of those games. Even more worrying is that Fu has lost eight of his last ten matches at The Crucible. Given the above stats, it’s hard to feel confident about either player but if pushed I would just favour Fu but his price..

Over these three day’s we will see some competitive races, with big names in trainers and jockeys appearing. Perth racecourse is a colourful place with plenty of everything going on. Perth is not a big course,which makes things easy to walk around and visible from any position to see the racing from, their is a big screen, so you are not missing anything.

As I mentioned, the big boys like to try their luck here, like Nicky Henderson, David Pipe, Nigel Twiston-Davies along with Paul Nicholls, just to name a few, several Irish trainers come over and raid the prize money, with the..
Horse Racing Specialisation - Whats Your Niche?
by nors on 18 Apr at 15:55
No one punter knows everything and no one punter can successfully study every race. The bookmakers choose to have races going off very close to each other, originally to keep the betting shop punters entertained and in the shops. But this is to the detriment of the punter. Whilst the punter bemoaned his losing bet he had an instant opportunity to try again, because like buses there would be another race along imminently. So the punter was inundated with races to bet on, a quick scan of the next race and he was on again. The punter had so many races to bet on, and in many cases so many races to lose on. If you think about other tasks you spend your money on i suspect you consider the offer, weigh up the costs, make a decision, think again about..
